I can't wait for every connected device in my house to be part of a botnet mining bitcoins for some dude in Belarus and the point of entry into my network was the completely unsecured connected scale that babysits my coffee supply.

''' This is what they do. By they I mean the fudsphere. Coordinated inside trading. Except they have mining machines to replenish their coins over time. User's wallets to dump. Botnets to coordinate attacks and run scams/fake news. And likely ties to corrupt fiat ventures ( which piggyback on the poor and helpless and are fueld by govs and politics). This all takes place on Coinbase, as they know the US exchanges are where the real money is. This is why the price fluctutations before and around the 1st and 15th of each month are like clockwork (they want your paycheck). This is why CB BTC fraction trading is dead and has been forever. Why most selling activity happens in the wee hours of the morning, and a million other things I could go on forever. Exchanges outside the US mostly revolve around doing whatever possible to retain their own coins and devalue the price of their users coins. Finally they reach coinbase, where they have no intention of buying whatsoever, only sell sell sell. Now, this isn't Coinbases fault believe it or not. I firmly believe it's the Asian miners, who because they have no outlet for selling fiat on their own exchanges have opted to camp out on CB. CB is legit, and are a major reason why we are where we are today. However, given the fact that Bitmain/China is mining hundreds of thousands, sometimes a millions, in coins every hour, 24/7, you realize that there's nothing that CB or any exchange can do, except sit and wait. They did a good job by keeping BSV off trading (this puts pressure on exchanges who don't carry coins, let a lone something as precious as a bitcoin). They did a good job of gently crashing BTC to $80 so that there was no more room for selling, no matter what happened. And they're tactics like 72 hour withdrawl delays that we are seeing right now aren't intended for us, the small players. Don't think they are trying to keep you back from withdrawing your $500, $5000, or even $50,000 in bitcoin. Look at he transaction history and you'll see stacks of 25,000 bitcoin flying around every minute... wouldn't you be pretty cautious if you owned the exchange? And it's not like they'll be able to rally the price upward.... so the best bet is down. Down so far the miners are on their kneeds begging for satoshis. CB, although not perfect and gladly willing to dump their users coins 24/7, you have to take everything into account before making your final decision on their integrity. Not to mention there's nobody in the history of mankind who has badmouthed CB and didn't have broke-ass English and wasn't an obvious cuck. You could argue that this is the nature of a supply/demand market. However, they are confident that their users won't all withdraw their funds simultaneously, so keeping 10-20% of what's actually needed to fulfill their user's wallets is likely common. And if they DO need a buck or two, after all of that, well that's how we came up with the word "shitcoin". If their users all left one day, their attitude would change very quickly. P.S. if you plan on margin trading be sure to short any and every alt-coin on the list simultaneously in equal amounts. give it a few months and thank me later!
